Christine Salazar

Puget Sound area artist Christine Salazar has been telling stories with her music since 2009.

She started playing piano at age 6 in her hometown of Port Orchard, Washington, and singing in the United Methodist Children’s Choir around age 9. She continued to grow as a singer as part of South Kitsap High School’s vocal jazz ensemble, Highlighters; and later at Edmonds Community College as a member of the premier vocal jazz group Soundsation.

At age 15 she learned to play guitar, and joined the worship band at her local youth group. In high school, she played keyboards and sang backup vocals for one of the pioneering emo-core bands of Kitsap County, G.L.A.S. She later gained more rock performance experience in college with her band Idole de L'ombre in Edmonds, WA; and most recently as singer/writer/keyboardist for Kitsap band Reverie.

She wrote her first song, “Sister,” in 2001. “I remember sitting on the couch with my dear friend and then-drummer Julien, nervously playing the song for him. The way he responded to the song lead to my first moment of actually believing I could make it as a songwriter. His words of encouragement stick with me to this day.”

Since that time, Christine has written over 40 songs and performs at venues all over the Puget Sound Area.
